The nice thing is that for less than $30, you can get a wedding website AND a personalized app for your guests for each of the wedding activities.  In addition, there is a free photo sharing app that allows you to collect (and delete!) guest photos on your website:

You can get it for even cheaper by using a coupon code from Style Me Pretty:

You are welcome! Since I know I'll be spending a lot of money on a few things (photographer, food, entertainment), I'm trying to really cut back where I can (dress, invites, travel, hotel, extras for guests) without sacrificing impact and quality.  I think an app will be a really cool and stylish way to get the word out---all while spending very little money.  For me the rule is: a few choice investments that lead to huge impact are far better than trying to do a whole lot of small to medium investments for little impact.

I agree. That is a smart way to think.  I think I want a video also. How do you feel about  a video? Worth it??

I think it is definitely worth it for some, but I had to decide what I wanted: stellar photography vs. okay photgraphy + okay videography, given my budget.  I would like to have video, but amazing photography was more important to me, so I decided to go with that.  Plus, I HATE the pictures I see with videographers filming right up by the altar. (Again, the quality of videographer I'd have to pay for is out of my budget.)

ETA: I'm going to send you my photographer so you will have an idea of what kind of thing I am looking for.  Everyone has different tastes and preferences.

Photography is the MOST important since the pictures are the best memories of your big day and you will be able to share with those who are not able to attend. I did splurge on my photogs

Its sounds like everyone's flight + AI resorts is about $3,000-$3,500 (I'm assuming this is per couple pricing). So your guests are also paying approximately that much to attend your wedding right? Most of my family and friends are finding it too expensive to attend. I may have less than 10 coming.

I would love to have both but I will have to check my budget also.
